Ford Territory EV Breaks Cover In China With 224-Mile Range

Ford’s first electric vehicle for the Chinese market is ready for its launch in the second half of this year.

The Ford Territory EV is the battery-powered version of the Territory SUV launched last year in China. As a reminder, the ICE-powered Territory is essentially a rebadged Yusheng 330 built by Ford’s joint venture partner Jiangling Motors.

According to Ford, the electric version of the Territory has an NEDC-rated driving range of 360 km (224 miles) on a single charge. Specially designed for young urban families, the Territory EV can be distinguished from regular Territory models thanks to subtle styling tweaks.

Those include the model-specific hexagonal front grille with a honeycomb pattern and “golden copper” trim, the C-shaped LED DRLs, aero-style wheels, and a rear end devoid of exhaust pipes and featuring LED taillights with a distinct signature.

Inside, the Ford Territory EV looks very similar to the ICE-powered model save for the unique transmission lever and 10.25-inch EV-specific digital instrument panel. A 10-inch central LCD touchscreen is also standard.

Onboard safety tech includes front collision warning, parking assist system, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, intelligent high beam control and traffic sign recognition, among other systems.

The Territory EV will be assembled at Jiangling Motors and will go on sale in the second half of the year in China. The electric SUV is the first electrified vehicle that will be launched under Ford’s new product plan for China announced in April.

Over the next three years, the U.S. automaker will introduce more than 30 new and upgraded vehicles including 10 electrified models under the Ford and Lincoln brands in China.
